Our 5th visit now, and still the perfect place to relax, kickback, but still find adventure and fun if we want to. ‘Greenlands Farm Village’ is great to visit and has wheelchair elevators in the shop & cafe. Lovely watching the cows, sheep and ducks we’ll be back next year.” (12th – 26th Sept 2015 for 2 weeks)
“7th Visit! In Oct 2011 we commented on how Stuart had inspired our son to be a tree surgeon – now he has just gained his Degree in Arb. – thanks to Stuart for his teaching and inspiration!
This was another great holiday. I am always impressed with how forward thinking the local Authority has been with allowing planning for these cabins, they are great for people with disabilities and great for the local bee population who were loving the fantastic grass/flower roofs. Well done All especially Jane & Stuart.”

“The Lake District has got to be one of the most stunning places on this planet regardless of the weather, but what we loved more “This place” after a great day out there is nothing better than coming back to “First Light” with its fabulous location, superb facilities (for our Emma) and very warm owners, Thank You.
As animal lovers it was paradise with ‘Ross’ the horse, ducks, lambs and sheep. Emma loved it as we all did, we will be back.”
